Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Our travel group is celebrating it by flying off to Havana from Cancún. We’ll be spending 10 days there: 7 days in Havana and 3 days at Varadero Beach. Travel to Cuba by Americans continues to increase, as more travel companies offer an increasing variety of tours. All the reports I’ve heard from first-time travelers have been very positive. Cubans seem to be happy to again welcome more travelers from their nearby neighbor to the north. I will update everybody as often as I can on this trip.
